    Hello,
    A friend of mine had her mother diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome. However, she does not know when to seek medical attention due to the condition. Can I get some help?

    Hello,
    It is always advised to seek medical attention whenever you feel unwell in whichever way. However, the following are the worse symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome:
    -Weight loss
    -Diarrhea at night
    -Rectal bleeding
    -Iron deficiency anemia
    -Unexplained vomiting
    -Difficulty swallowing
    -Persistent pain that isn’t relieved by passing gas or a bowel movement
